WE Will Rock You will be returning to Edinburgh next month with an opening night gala for the Mercury Phoenix Trust on December 1.

The show will feature a special appearance by Queen legend Brian May.

Tickets are still available for the gala, which will also be attended by celebrity supporters of the charity at the Edinburgh Playhouse on World Aids Day.

Speaking about the gala, May said: “I am really excited to be taking part in the show in Edinburgh, it’s always so much fun and a fantastic atmosphere and to know that we’ll be raising money for the Mercury Phoenix Trust is the icing on the cake.”

All funds raised on the opening night will be donated to the trust, which was founded in 1992 by Brian May and Roger Taylor together with Queen’s manager Jim Beach to help distribute money raised from the Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert. Since then, the trust has raised more than £9.5 million to help in the fight against AIDS worldwide.
